Conservative pundit Wayne Allyn Root writes in a WorldNetDaily column today that President Obama waited to speak out out on the crisis in Ferguson, Missouri, because he is trying to start a race war and distract voters from issues like Obamacare and immigration.
Root — who probably would have attacked Obama for fostering racial hostility had he weighed in on the situation in Ferguson earlier — writes that Obama “could have put this smoldering fire out days ago” by appearing in Ferguson since he “isn’t just any president; he’s the first black president.”
After arguing that Obama hasn’t spoken about race-related issues enough, he goes on to accuse Obama of “stirring the pot” on race because he “desperately needs to distract the people to carry out his plan to destroy this country.”
“Obama needs ‘division.’ Race warfare. Class warfare. Anger. Resentment. Civil war.”
“Here is the perfect opportunity to divide the nation, to incite unrest and violence across America,” he writes. “If the American people are fighting each other, they won’t see what is really happening to the country. And think of the bonuses here. Obama could use spreading unrest to declare martial law.”
This situation could have been defused 10 days ago with an appearance by the president. Barack Obama isn’t just any president; he’s the first black president. The young man killed by police was a black male. The smoldering town is predominantly black. The angry crowds are black Americans. A few words from Obama while standing on the ground in Ferguson could have put this smoldering fire out days ago.
Obama could have stopped this fire from getting out of control at any time of his choosing. So where was Obama? Why doesn’t he want to put the fire out?
My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class,” is all about the accelerating decline and destruction of America under Barack Obama. Nothing Obama does is by mistake. Everything has a purpose. Everything fits an agenda to “fundamentally change America.” Obama never lets a crisis go to waste. He uses every crisis to distract the people. Don’t look now, but Ferguson is the perfect crisis, at the perfect time. This one came on a silver platter!
What is Obama distracting us from? Pick a story, any story. America is crumbling on all fronts. Jobs. The economy. Immigration. Obamacare. Israel. Putin. ISIS. It’s all going bad. Fast.
So how do you hide and distract the masses from this unfolding multi-pronged disaster? How do you try to change landslide losses in the upcoming midterm elections? You change the game. You create strife and division. Racial division. It’s the perfect cover.
Watch tonight’s news. Count the minutes on all these stories versus Ferguson. It’s Obama’s dream come true! The perfect distraction. Heck, not only is Ferguson eating up all the air in the room, but Brian Williams and the NBC national news was coming from Ferguson last night. Can you imagine if unrest, rioting and looting spreads to cities across America? It will dominate the news for weeks, pushing all Obama’s disasters off the air.
Obama has stirred the pot for six years now. Black against white. Rich against poor. Men against women. Republicans against Democrats. Private sector against public servants. Taxpayers against the tax takers. Obama needs “division.” Race warfare. Class warfare. Anger. Resentment. Civil war. America is bursting at the seams. It’s all part of the agenda. It’s all part of the Cloward-Piven plan we learned as classmates at Columbia University, Class of ’83. Obama desperately needs to distract the people to carry out his plan to destroy this country. He is following the plan to a T.
Ferguson just happened to come along at the perfect time. It’s exactly what Obama needed. Ferguson is the perfect match to light the fire. Here is the perfect opportunity to divide the nation, to incite unrest and violence across America.
If the American people are fighting each other, they won’t see what is really happening to the country. And think of the bonuses here. Obama could use spreading unrest to declare martial law. This crisis could accelerate Obama’s plans times a thousand. Cloward and Piven are smiling. Saul Alinsky is nodding. Karl Marx is applauding.
Ferguson is just the start. Obama has lit the match. America is on fire.

Heat also makes it likely that young men — it's mostly young men — will take to the streets to act out."
The Tea Party of Louisiana has declared Sen. David Vitter a “turncoat of liberty” because of his support for Common Core, warning yesterday that the education standards will turn kids gay. Vitter came out in favor of Common Core while Gov. Bobby Jindal, who once supported Common Core, is now trying — so far unsuccessfully— to repeal the standards. Angry with Vitter’s remarks, the Tea Party group responed by linking to an article titled “Common Core Turns First Wave Of Students Gay,” apparently unaware that it was from the parody website Broken World News.
“Initial estimates suggest that as many as 60% of students who participated in Common Core have gone gay, many overnight. But experts fear that some are just transitioning a little slower,” the Broken World News article reads. “[T]he difficulty of the Common Core tests is the primary culprit in promoting the gay agenda, calling it ‘common knowledge that the smartest kids in school are usually the gay kids.’”
Of course, the next item listed by the Tea Party group should also be taken as a joke, as it comes from consistently discredited pseudo-historian David Barton.
On Saturday, Phyllis Schlafly hosted a very special 25th anniversary edition of “Eagle Forum Live,” in which she received laudatory messages from a number of fans, including Iowa Republican congressman Steve King.
King called in to congratulate Schlafly on her organization’s “wonderful success” and to tell her that he carries “in my jacket pocket every day” a copy of her 1964 book “A Choice Not An Echo”…right next to his Bible.
Schlafly returned the praise, saying, “We try to get good people like Steve King situated in Congress, where they can keep us faithful to the Constitution.”
Brigitte Gabriel has a theory about why the Empire State Building was lit up in green in July in celebration of Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan: "as a security counter-measure to cause terrorists to not consider it for an attack."

David Vitter appears to have embraced Michele Bachmann’s plan to prevent immigrants from sending money to their home countries, telling Sandy Rios in an interview yesterday that the U.S. government needs to “crack down” on remittances.
When Rios asked the Louisiana senator about remittances, which she feared could be going to “terrorists,” Vitter said he has “a proposal to put an end to that, to either end or put a heavy, heavy fine on those sorts of transfers and dedicate that money, use that money specifically for border or workplace enforcement.”
Vitter told Rios that “if we can effectively crack down on that, that would be very helpful in terms of enforcement.”
Indeed, Vitter has introduced the WIRE Act, which “requires a fee on remittances for customers who wire money to another country but cannot prove that they are in the United States legally. The fee would be used to enhance border security.”
Robert George, the reigning intellectual godfather of the Religious Right, complains in an interview with the Christian Post today that judges who recognize the right of same-sex couples to marry are not only ignoring the Constitution, they are ignoring his own brilliant arguments.
George, co-author of the Manhattan Declaration and co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage, published a law review article and book, “What is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense” with Sherif Gergis and the Heritage Foundation’s Ryan Anderson. George is quite proud that Justice Samuel Alito cited their arguments in his dissent to the Supreme Court decision overturning part of the Defense of Marriage Act. But he cannot accept that any judge with a commitment to the Constitution could possibly disagree with him.
George broadly renounces all judges who have ruled in favor of marriage equality as engaging in a “pure ideological power play.” He acknowledges that marriage equality rulings have come from judges nominated by both Republicans and Democrats, but portrays them all as “liberal judges who don’t like traditional morality and the traditional understanding of marriage and want to overturn it.”
“So they’re abusing their offices, they’re usurping the authority of the elected representatives of the people, and sometimes the people themselves acting through referendums and initiative, to impose their own vision, their own preferences, their own political policy preferences on the American people. It’s not right and it’s unconstitutional.”
George is incensed that judges are applying the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to same-sex couples, because he says the authors of that mid-19th Century amendment were not thinking about marriage equality.
“It’s just an offense against constitutionalism, against the rule of law, against the idea that the people rule themselves in a republican form of government, to seize on a provision like the Equal Protection Clause and to overturn the laws of marriage.”
But most of all, George cannot seem to accept that an ideologically diverse set of judges, in dozens of opinions, could have considered and rejected his arguments.
“It seems to me that the courts, if they’re going to strike down the marriage laws in the name of the 14th amendment, do have an obligation to at least engage the argument that we presented, but so far they haven’t. And I know the reason why they haven’t. The reason why they haven’t… is that they don’t have an answer for the argument.”
That is ridiculous. But don’t take my word for it. I ran Robert George’s claims by Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights and a major player in marriage equality advocacy. Here’s what he said:
Judges across the country have considered the arguments put forward by Professor George and others—that marriage is essentially tied to heterosexual procreation and to the alleged “sexual complementarity” of men and women—and have overwhelmingly concluded that they are not persuasive. In fact, most of those courts have held that such arguments are so tenuous and illogical that they fail even the lowest level of constitutional scrutiny.
Mission America's Linda Harvey was a guest on the AFA's "Today's Issues" broadcast this morning where the discussion turned to her concerns about the growing acceptance of the idea that people can be Christian and gay, as demonstrated by the recent announcement from British singer Vickey Beeching.
"I shudder for them," Harvey said whenever she reads about Christians who identify as gay as well as "ex-gay" Christians who renounce "ex-gay" therapy.
"We have to stop giving homosexuality special sin status," she warned, as if "that struggle is somehow different than the sin struggles of a lot of people for a lot of things and ultimately we come down on the side of what does God what me to do."
Too many people, Harvey said, are starting to believe that "homosexuality is fine" and, in doing so, they are "basically thumbing your nose in the face of God and that is not a good position to be in":
In an interview with the conservative outlet Newsmax today, Lloyd Marcus of the Conservative Campaign Committee broke into tears while defending the Tea Party.
Marcus, who has also worked with the Tea Party Express and wrote the “Tea Party Anthem,” said that the media, establishment Republicans and President Obama — whom he said should be impeached — are unfairly smearing the Tea Party as a racist and xenophobic movement.
He twice broke into tears during the ten minute interview, the first after host Ed Berliner said many voters believe Tea Party activists refuse to compromise and aren’t happy unless they get everything they want. Marcus insisted that the movement is filled with decent, patriotic people who simply want to unify America and deliver the country from Obama’s lawlessness.
